Railroading Diversity And Inclusion Through Servant Leadership With Roquita Coleman-Williams And Planting Seeds Of Curiosity With Emily Mishler

You wouldn’t think it possible for a little girl to dream about being a railroad professional, but that childhood fascination turned out to be the future for Roquita Coleman-Williams. With her unique leadership experience in an industry traditionally dominated by men, Roquita soon had herself thrust upon the TEDx stage as a thought leader in diversity and inclusion. Joining Dr. Diane Hamilton for this interview, Roquita discusses how servant leadership can strategically bridge the inclusion gap in organizations, how change can start from the middle and how to achieve sustained cultural change. Roquita is one remarkable woman who has a knack of finding herself in places where she “isn’t supposed to be” and challenging the status quo. Listen in and partake of her wisdom and experience.

“Curiosity killed the cat,” as the old wives’ tale would have it, but that age-old “wisdom” misses the point of curiosity being a catalyst for change. Emily Mishler is on a mission to challenge this outdated way of thinking by planting seeds of curiosity among the new generation. Out of that passion was born Esmè the Curious Cat, a children’s book series that inspires future generations to be the change that they wish to see. Going by the penname of Em Valentine, Emily created a character that is a reflection of herself but also of a bigger movement towards promoting curiosity and creative thinking. Listen in as she shares the genesis of Esmè and some revelations of future directions with Dr. Diane Hamilton.

The Power of Perception in Organizations

As leaders strive to improve their corporate cultures, they often neglect to recognize a pivotal contributor to the success or failure of their organizations. The most effective leaders understand the value of perception. When we hear that word, we might think of an Internet meme of whether we see the blue or gold dress. Or, we might envision a picture with two circles that fool us into thinking they are different sizes. However, perception is much more than just how we see things. If we incorporate our intellect (IQ), emotions (EQ), culture (CQ), and curiosity (CQ2), we get our perception quotient (PQ). Through understanding the value of perception, leaders can tap into their employees’ abilities to improve communication and develop awareness by asking questions, which leads to developing empathy and interpersonal skills. Without recognizing the interconnection of these crucial components, organizations can miss opportunities to improve partnerships, expand into new markets, build innovation, and become a key player in a global economy. Because of this, there has never been a more critical time to develop our perceptual awareness. That begins with understanding the process.
